California Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility and Owner Agree to Voluntary Exclusion

On August 8, 2018, CHJ Diagnostic, Inc., an independent diagnostic testing facility in Orange, California, and Andranik Tovmasyan, its owner (collectively, “CHJ”), agreed to be excluded for a period of five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that CHJ submitted claims for nerve conduction studies that are considered screening exams and not covered by Medicare. OIG's Office of Audit Services and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, represented by Senior Counsels Geoffrey Hymans and Kenneth Kraft, collaborated to achieve this resolution.
